Have just returned from 5 days at puente real. We had a superior room and an apartment. The superior rooms are located in the main hotel with sea views and the rooms are larger than the standard rooms. If you like a view of the sea and a large balcony worth paying the extra, although all the rooms are equipped the same you literally are paying for the view and space. The apartments are located in blocks around the pools and pool bars. They are good sized and have a lounge bedroom kitchen and modern bathroom with shower. All rooms are cleaned well every day. If the hotel wanted to improve on room facilities it could invest in some better quality towels, the ones we had had defiantly seen better days and were thin and scratchy! Lovely flat screen tv in the superior room, but only one English Channel, not a problem for us as we don't go on holiday to watch tv!
We arrived at the hotel at 10.30am our superior room was ready but the apartment wasn't. The lovely lady on reception gave us all our al bands and we were free to use all the facilities. Check out was at 12 and a courtesy room for showering later was available to book free from reception. We had late night flights and we were able to use the facilities and eat and drink right up until we left. Everyone on reception was very helpful and friendly. In fact this could be said of all the staff from cleaners to the animation team.
If you are looking for a clean relaxed friendly hotel this is the one. All areas are kept spotless the staff work very hard but always have time for a chat and a friendly smile.
There are two swimming pools the main pool area also has the animation stage, there are various activities throughout the day if you want to join in. They do play music round the main pool but its not played all day and overly loud as some guests have commented. The main pool area opens around 9am and you can reserve your sun beds then, there is usually a queue for this but there are plenty of beds to go around. There is also a second pool which is quieter and ideal for swimming.. Again there are plenty of beds around this pool and these can be reserved from around 8am. Many of the apartments over look the pools. There is a pool bar which is manned but soft drinks wine beer and hot drinks are all self service. There is also a very nice milkshake machine......yum. Various cocktails are available all day. Ice creams including ice lollies and ice poles are available until 11pm free of charge. There is a poolside snack bar open from 10 - 1 pm and 3pm - 7pm this services chicken kebabs chips burgers hot dogs and toasted sandwiches, the man who cooks and serves is lovely and makes all orders fresh always with a smile. Pizza is available from the poolside bar during the day and from 10pm. The bar stops serving al guests promptly at 11pm. There is an inside bar which is open during mealtimes and in the evening.
The food - plenty of choice at all mealtimes , I'm very fussy but always managed to find something to eat and I didn't have chips once!
The area around the hotel is lovely and perfect if you enjoy walking along the front. It is a 20 min walk into town but there are bars and shops all along the way, if you prefer there is a bus to town which costs €1,22 each way. The crocodile park is well worth a visit and entry costs €15.50 per adult.
If you enjoy watching the footy then can recommend the bar round the corner come out of the hotel turn right walk until you see the first set of shops the bar is just next to them.
The hotel is only 10 mins from the airport and we just caught the train either get off at Los almos or la Colima station. Los almos is slightly closer and a 10 minute walk, come out of the station then head straight towards the sea once at the bottom of the road turn right and the hotel is a little further along on the right hand side. The cost of the train fare is €1.75.
We had a lovely time at this hotel and will def be returning.
